Rose Quartz and Serenity, the Pantone colors of 2016

 

Each year, color specialist and trendsetter Pantone announces the color of the year.  However, this year they chose not one, but two colors: rose quartz and serenity. The two soft pastel colors stand for equality and balance.

The colors will do well in fashion as well as in the interior. You might at first sight relate the colors to  baby blue and baby pink and can imagine them only in children's rooms. But if you combine the two colors with neutral tones like white, gold or gray, you actually create balance. You can use both colors as an accent color on an accent wall, or by use of a striking sofa, and keep the rest of your interior neutral. Mind you, serenity is a cool color, rose quartz is warm, so if you combine them with gray you get two different atmospheres.

Serenity and rose quartz also do very well when combined with wood. Want a laminate or parquet floor perk up with these trend colors, or experiment a bit? We have some beautiful vintage rugs in these colors!
